Bersyukur..thankful..





In every challenging situation, there is something for which to be thankful.

Find it, and you're well on your way to getting successfully through the challenge.

It may seem strange to express gratitude while in the midst of trouble and difficulty.
Yet that gratitude can help to shine a positive, empowering light on any situation.

If you allow yourself to be overwhelmed with negativity, all you can see are the problems. When you choose instead to find something for which to be thankful, you start to see the all the many good and positive resources available to you.

In the most difficult situations you can often find the most valuable opportunities. Gratitude will open your eyes to those opportunities.
Always, there is a positive aspect to be found
.

Always, there is something for which you can be genuinely thankful.

Find something real to be thankful for, and you'll find yourself moving forward.

ajari anak-anak kita erti kehidupan...



...doa abah semuga anak-anak abah berjaya dunia dan akhirat


This is a powerful message in our modern society. We seemed to have lost our bearing & our sense of direction.


One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.

He passed the first interview, the director did the last interview, made the last decision.

The director discovered from the CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate research, never had a year when he did not score.

The director asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" the youth answered "none".

The director asked, " Was it your father who paid for your school fees?" The youth answered, "My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.

The director asked, " Where did your mother work?" The youth answered, "My mother worked as clothes cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.

The director asked, " Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?" The youth answered, "Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Furthermore, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.

The director said, "I have a request. When you go back today, go and clean your mother's hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.*

The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back, he happily requested his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to the kid.

The youth cleaned his mother's hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother's hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother shivered when they were cleaned with water.

This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fee. The bruises in the mother's hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his graduation, academic excellence and his future.

After finishing the cleaning of his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother.

That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.

Next morning, the youth went to the director's office.

The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, asked: " Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?"

The youth answered, " I cleaned my mother's hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes'

The Director asked, " please tell me your feelings."

The youth said, Number 1, I know now what is appreciation. Without my mother, there would not the successful me today. Number 2, by working together and helping my mother, only I now realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done. Number 3, I have come to appreciate the importance and value of family relationship.

The director said, " This is what I am looking for to be my manager.
I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life. You are hired.

Later on, this young person worked very hard, and received the respect of his subordinates. Every employee worked diligently and as a team. The company's performance improved tremendously.

A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop "entitlement mentality" and would always put himself first. He would be ignorant of his parent's efforts. When he starts work, he assumes that every person must listen to him, and when he becomes a manager, he would never know the sufferings of his employees and would always blame others. For this kind of people, who may be good academically, may be successful for a while, but eventually would not feel sense of achievement. He will grumble and be full of hatred and fight for more. If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying the kid instead?*

You can let your kid live in a big house, eat a good meal, learn piano, watch a big screen TV. But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it.
After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters.
It is not because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way.
You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day their hair will grow gray, same as the mother of that young person.
The most important thing is your kid learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done.

Bring out the positive...




Dalam kehidupan kita seharian...banyak perkara positif yg berlaku keatas diri kita darpada perkara-perkara negatif,tapi kita selalu fokus kpd yg negatif dan separuh drp tenaga kita gunakan utk perkara negatif itu.

Ironinya,ini kerana the goods and positive things sudah menjadi perkara biasa (so common),so much so sudah menjadi part of life dan kita tidak menyedari keujudan nya.Sebaliknya ,Perkara Negatif,dan Permasalahan kecil atau besar akan mendapat perhatian kita kerana ianya "tidak menjadi kebiasaan" (relatively unusual)

Unfortunately, Dgn memberi perhatian kpd perkara-perkara negative ,kita juga memberi perkara itu kekuatan dan tenaga dan sokongan. Obviously that's not really what you want.

Instead of letting the small number of difficulties grab all your attention, work to become more aware of the overwhelmingly large number of good things.

Challenge kan diri kita sendiri.. to compile a list in your mind, as the day goes on, sekurang-kurangnya 20 good, positive, valuable things that come your way.

Most people, when asked to make a list of their troubles, would quickly be able to name dozens of things.


Yet when you start looking instead for your blessings, and keeping a mental record of them, what you discover will positively amaze and delight you.


Put a little effort into bringing out the positive, and it will bring out the best in you.

Act upon yr knowledge..






Muhammad bin Abi ‘Ali al-Asbahaanee recited:

“Act upon your knowledge and you will profit,
O man
Knowledge does not benefit so long as one does not perfect his actions

Knowledge is beauty and Taqwa (Fear) of Allah is its decoration

Those with Taqwa are always preoccupied with their knowledge

The proof of Allah, O possessor of knowledge, is immense
Neither plotting nor scheming concerning it is of any use

Acquire knowledge and perform deeds as much as you can
And do not let vain pastimes and argumentation distract you

Always make it your goal to benefit the people

And beware, beware of fatigue and weariness overtaking you

Admonish your brother with gentleness when he makes a mistake

For knowledge is affectionate with those who are overcome by errors

And if you are amidst a people that have no religious morals
Then command them to do good when they act ignorantly (i.e. sin)

And if they disobey you, then remind them without getting annoyed

And be patient, strive in patience and do not let their actions worry you

For every goat is attached to its two feet

Have patience whether they are oppressive or fair.”

al-Khateeb al-Baghdadi’s ‘Iqtida’ al-’Ilm al-’Amal’

keutamaan kita...fikirkanlah



Betapa besarnya nilai wang kertas bernilai RM1 apabila dibawa ke masjid
untuk disedekahkan; tetapi betapa kecilnya kalau dibawa ke Mall untuk dibelanjakan!

Betapa lamanya melayani Allah selama lima belas minit namun
betapa singkatnya kalau kita melihat filem.

betapa sulitnya untuk mencari kata-kata ketika berdoa (spontan) namun
betapa mudahnya kalau mengata atau mengumpat
tanpa harus berfikir panjang-panjang.

Betapa asyiknya apabila pertandingan bola dipanjangkan waktunya namun
kita mengeluh ketika khutbah di masjid lebih lama sedikit daripada biasa.

Betapa sulitnya untuk membaca satu helai Al-qur'an tapi
betapa mudahnya membaca 100 halaman dari novel atau majalah yang laris.

Betapa beria-ia orang untuk duduk di depan dalam pertandingan atau konsert namun
lebih senang berada di saf paling belakang ketika berada di Masjid

Betapa Mudahnya membuat 40 tahun dosa demi memuaskan nafsu berahi semata, namun
alangkah sulitnya ketika menahan nafsu selama 30 hari ketika berpuasa.

Betapa sulitnya untuk menyediakan waktu untuk solat 5 waktu; namun
betapa mudahnya menyesuaikan waktu dalam sekejap pada
saat terakhir untuk event yang menyenangkan.

Betapa sulitnya untuk mempelajari erti yang terkandung di dalam al qur'an; namun
betapa mudahnya untuk mengulang-ulangi gosip yang sama kepada orang lain.

Betapa mudahnya kita mempercayai apa yang dikatakan oleh surat khabar namun
betapa kita meragui apa yang dikatakan oleh Kitab Suci Al-Quran.
Betapa Takutnya kita apabila dipanggil Boss dan cepat-cepat menghadapnya namun
betapa kita berani dan lamanya untuk menghadapNya saat kumandang azan bergema.

Betapa setiap orang ingin masuk syurga seandainya tidak perlu untuk percaya atau
berfikir,atau mengatakan apa-apa,atau berbuat apa-apa.

Amanah..



Berapa banyak amanah yg sudah diberikan kepada kita, dan berapa banyak telah kita laksanakan amanah tersebut.

Amanah kita sebagai hamba Allah, sebagai anak, sebagai pelajar, sebagai pemimpin, sebagai kakak/abang/adik, sebagai isteri/suami, sebagai sahabat, dan sebagainya. Begitu banyak amanah yg kita pikul di bahu kita.
Allah telah tegaskan dalam al-Quran, sesiapa yg tidak melaksanakan amanah yg diberikan, maka dia akan diazab dengan azab yg sangat pedih, nauuzubillah.

Menurut Imam Fakruddin ar-Razi, amanah itu dibahagikan kepada tiga perkara;
(a) amanah terhadap tuhan,
(b) amanah terhadap manusia, dan
(c) amanah terhadap diri manusia itu sendiri.


...Amanah terhadap tuhan adalah, dengan melaksanakan segala perintah-Nya dan meninggalkan segala larangan-Nya.

Adapun amanah terhadap manusia adalah, melaksanakan segala kewajipan yang wajib dilakukan terhadap manusia.

Amanah manusia terhadap dirinya sendiri pula adalah, dia melakukan tindakan yang tidak memberi mudharat pada dirinya sendiri, sebaliknya terus melakukan tindakan yang melahirkan maslahah dan yang lebih baik untuk dirinya.

sahabat2 ku yg sentiasa ku ingati.
Sememangnya amanah itu sangat berat. Oleh itu, kita haruslah sentiasa berdoa kepada Allah agar diberi kekuatan untuk melaksanakan semua amanah yang terpundak di bahu kita. Hanya Allah sahaja sumber kekuatan... utama kita, malah Dia-lah yang maha mengetahui akan sesuatu...^_^

..nikmat Allah yg sering kita lupa...




I Am Not Cryin Because …

A man reached 70 years of age and he faced a disease; he could not urinate. The doctors informed him that he was in need of an operation to cure this disease. He agreed to have the operation done as the problem was giving him much pain for days. When the operation was completed, his doctor gave him the bill which covered all the costs. The old man looked at the bill and started to cry. Upon seeing this the doctor told him that if the cost was too high then they could make some other arrangements. The old man said “I am not crying because of the money but I am crying because Allah let me urinate for 70 years and He never sent me a bill.”

…and if you try to count the blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them… Surah Ibrahim

Allah states that the servants are never able to count His blessings, let alone thank Him duly for them. In Sahih Al-Bukhari it is recorded that the Messenger of Allah( Peace and blessings be upon him) used to supplicate;

«اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ غَيْرَ مَكْفِيَ وَلَا مُوَدَّعٍ وَلَا مُسْتَغْنًى عَنْهُ رَبَّنَا»

O Allah ! All praise is due to You, without being able to sufficiently thank You, nor ever wish to be cutoff from You, nor ever feeling rich from relying on You; our Lord!

It was reported that Prophet Dawud peace be upon him, used to say in his supplication, “O Lord! How can I ever duly thank You, when my thanking You is also a favor from You to me’’
Allah the Exalted answered him, “Now, you have thanked Me sufficiently, O Dawud,’’ meaning, `when you admitted that you will never be able to duly thank Me.’

dugaan Allah..kesenangan dan kesusahan..





Di dalam Lisanu al-‘Arab, Ibn Manzur telah menyatakan bahawa bala’ merupakan ujian samada yang baik atau yang buruk.

Allah juga telah menjelaskan perkara tersebut didalam surah al-Anbiyaa’;


(( وَنَبْلوكُمْ بٍالشَّرِّ وَالْخَيْرِ فِتْنَةً وَإِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُوْنَ ))



“Dan Kami menguji kamu dengan kesusahan dan kesenangan sebagai dugaan; dan kepada Kami-lah kamu semua akan dikembalikan". [Al-Anbiyaa’: 35]





Sama-sama berdoa memohon keampunan dari Allah kerana telah menzalimi diri sendiri. Sama-sama telah melanggar larangan Allah dari memakan buah pohon Khuldi.


قَالَا رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنْفُسَنَا وَإِنْ لَمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
“wahai tuhan kami! kami telah menganiaya diri sendiri,
dan jika engkau tidak mengampunkan kami
dan memberi rahmat kepada kami,
maka jadilah kami daripada golongan orang-orang yang rugi”
-Al A’raaf: 23


Kesan daripada taubat dari kesilapan yang telah mereka lakukan telah menjadikan diri mereka hamba-hamba Allah yang soleh. Belajar dari kesilapan untuk menuju kebaikan. Takut untuk menghadapi lagi sebarang kemurkaan.

Bagaimana pula dengan diri kita?

Apakah kesilapan yang telah dilakukan menjadi titik permulaan bagi sebuah kehidupan yang lebih baik dan diredhai.

Atau kesilapan tersebut menjadi titik noktah tanpa penambah baikan bagi episod sebuah kehidupan yang dimurkai?

lailatul qadr..






1. Sesungguhnya Kami telah menurunkan (Al-Quran) ini pada malam Lailatul-Qadar,

2. dan apa jalannya Engkau dapat mengetahui apa Dia kebesaran malam Lailatul-Qadar itu?

3. malam Lailatul-Qadar lebih baik daripada seribu bulan.

4. pada malam itu, turun malaikat dan Jibril Dengan izin Tuhan mereka, kerana membawa Segala perkara (yang ditakdirkan berlakunya pada tahun Yang berikut);

5. sejahteralah malam (yang berkat) itu hingga terbit fajar!





“Sesiapa yang bangun (beribadat) pada malam Lailatul Qadar dengan penuh keimanan dan Ihtisab maka baginya keampunan untuk dosa-dosa yang lepas.” [HR: Al-Bukhari dan Muslim].

Beberapa kelebihan tentang Lailatul Qadar yang dapat diambil dari surah al-Qadar antaranya ialah:

Allah menurunkan al-Quran pada malam tersebut yang mana ia memberi petunjuk kepada manusia dan memberi kebahagiaan di dunia dan akhirat.

Allah SWT menyoal “Apakah kamu mengetahui apakah dia Lailatul Qadar?” Persoalan seperti ini menunjukkan keagungan dan kemuliaan perkara tersebut.•
Ia lebih baik daripada 1000 bulan (83 tahun 3 bulan).

Para Malaikat akan turun ke dunia pada malamnya dengan membawa kebaikan, keberkatan dan rahmat.

Malam ini adalah malam kesejahteraan sehingga terbitnya fajar.

laitu kesejahteraan daripada neraka dan azab Tuhan bagi hamba yang menghidupkannya dengan amal ibadah.

Allah menurunkan kelebihannya dengan menurunkan satu surah penuh yang akan dibaca sehingga ke hari akhirat.
Para ulama’ Salaf dikalangan Sahabat dan Tabi’in bersedia dengan mandi dan berwangi-wangian pada malam-malam sepuluh yang terakhir sebagai persediaan untuk beribadat serta mencari dan menjejaki Lailatul Qadar yang telah dimuliakan oleh Allah dan diangkatkan kedudukannya.
Rugilah orang yang mensia-siakan umurnya dengan perkara-perkara yang tidak berfaedah.
Tampunglah segera kelalaian yang lalu dengan mencari Lailatul Qadar.
Sesungguhnya ia menyamai umur manusia bahkan lebih dari itu.

Apakah tempoh 83 tahun 3 bulan, sesuatu yang singkat? Beramal pada malam tersebut lebih baik dari kita beramal dalam tempoh 83 tahun, sesiapa yang telah melepaskan peluang kebaikan ini adalah orang yang akan kerugian. Bilakah Lailatul Qadar?

Bulan Ramadhan.Tidak syak bahawa Lailatul Qadar berlaku pada bulan Ramadhan berdasarkan ayat-ayat al-Quran bahawa aI-Quran diturunkan pada Lailatul Qadar, dan diturunkan pada bulan Ramadhan. Maka semestinya ia berlaku pada bulan Ramadhan.

Dalam satu hadis, Abu Zar ra bertanya kepada Nabi SAW, maksudnya:
“Wahai Rasulullah, khabarkan padaku tentang Lailatul Qadar, adakah ia pada bulan Ramadhan?” Jawab Baginda SAW: “Bahkan pada bulan Ramadhan”. [HR: Ahmad dan Nasa’i].

Sepuluh terakhir Ramadhan.Lebih dikhususkan pada sepuluh terakhir Ramadhan berdasarkan banyak hadis, antaranya hadis muttafaq alaih:
((تَحَرَّوْا لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ فِي الْعَشْرِ الأَوَاخِرِ مِنْ رَمَضَانَ)) [متفق عليه]
Maksudnya: “Carilah Lailatul Qadar pada sepuluh terakhir daripada Ramadhan”. [HR: Al-Bukhari dan Muslim].

Aisyah radhiallahu’anha(ra) meriwayatkan bahawa Rasulullah r bersungguh-sungguh pada sepuluh terakhir melebihi kesungguhannya pada masa-masa lain.
Di dalam hadith muttafaq alaih kata Aisyah ra: “Adalah Rasulullah SAW apabila masuk sepuluh terakhir Baginda mengetatkan kainnya (tidak mendatangi isterinya), menghidupkan malam dan mengejutkan keluarganya”.

Aisyah ra juga meriwayatkan, maksudnya: “Adalah Nabi SAW pada dua puluh malam terawal mencampurkan antara solat dan tidur. Apabila tiba sepuluh terakhir, Baginda bersungguh-sungguh, dan mengetatkan kainnya”. [HR: Ahmad].

Kata Syeikh Muhammad bin Soleh aI-Uthaimin: “Zahir hadis ini menunjukkan bahawa Baginda menghidupkan keseluruhan malam dengan beribadah; iaitu berzikir, membaca al-Quran, bersolat dan membuat persediaan untuk ibadah lain seperti bersahur.

Menghidupkan malam bukan hanya dengan solat, malahan dengan pelbagai jenis ibadah seperti zikir, membaca aI-Quran, beristighfar, berdoa dan lain-lain. Oleh itu, apa yang dimaksudkan oleh Aisyah ra: “Aku tidak mengetahui Rasulullah pernah mendirikan malam sehingga pagi”, maksudnya Rasulullah SAW tidak pernah solat sahaja sepanjang malam.” Rasulullah SAW juga mengambil peluang sepuluh terakhir Ramadhan ini dengan mengejutkan ahli keluarganya untuk beribadah.


Baginda mahu supaya mereka juga tidak ketinggalan di dalam mendapat kebaikan yang disediakan Allah SWT.
Firman Allah SWT: Maksudnya:
{Wahai orang-orang yang beriman, jagalah dirimu dan keluargamu daripada api neraka}. [At-Tahrim: 6].


Tujuh malam terakhir.Bagi mereka yang tidak mampu menghidupkan pada permulaan sepuluh terakhir, maka boleh memulakan pada tujuh malam terakhir. Sabda Rasulullah SAW:
((التَمِسُوهَا فِي الْعَشْرِ الأَوَاخِرِ -يَعْنِي لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ- فَإِنْ ضَعُفَ أَحَدُكُمْ، أَوْ عَجَزَ، فَلا يُغْلَبَنَّ عَلَى السَّبْعِ الْبَوَاقِي)) [مسلم]
Maksudnya:
“Carilah pada sepuluh terakhir. Jika salah seorang di kalangan kamu lemah atau tidak berupaya, maka janganlah dia tertewas pada tujuh yang berbaki lagi.” [HR: Muslim].

Malam-malam ganjil (21,23,25,27,29).Malam-malam ini lebih diharapkan adanya Lailatul Qadar, kerana warid bahawa Nabi SAW menyebut malam-malam tersebut.
Malam 27 Ramadhan.Boleh jadi malam yang sangat diharapkan ialah pada malam 27, ini berpandukan kepada hadis yang diriwayatkan oleh Imam Muslim daripada Ubai bin Ka’ab ra beliau berkata, yang bermaksud: “Demi Allah sesungguhnya aku tahu pada malam bilakah ia, itulah malam yang mana Rasulullah SAW telah menyuruh kami untuk bangun beribadah, iaitu malam yang ke 27,” dan Ubai berkata lagi: “Melalui tanda-tanda dan alamat yang dikhabarkan oleh Rasulullah SAW kepada kami bahawasanya matahari yang akan terbit pada pagi harinya tiada (شعاع) sinarnya”

Namun ramai ulama’ berpendapat malam Lailatul Qadar berpindah di antara malam-malam witir, tetapi yang ghalib kebanyakannya pada malam 27, dan bukanlah suatu yang tepat sekiranya kita menganggap pada malam tersebutlah sahaja akan berlaku Lailatul Qadar. Wallahu a’lam.


Bacaan Malam Lailatul Qadar.Aisyah ra berkata: ”Wahai Rasulullah, sekiranya aku dipertemukan dengan malam Lailatul Qadar apakah yang harus aku ucapkan?”
Rasulullah SAW bersabda: ((اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ عُفُوٌّ كَرِيمٌ، تُحِبُّ الْعَفْوَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي))
Maksudnya: “(Ucapkanlah) Wahai Tuhanku, sesungguhnya Engkau Maha Pengampun lagi Pemurah dan suka mengampunkan maka ampunkanlah aku.” [HR: Ahmad, at-Tirmizi, sahih].

Selamat menyambut Hari Merdeka






MELAYU.


Melayu itu orang yang bijaksana

Nakalnya bersulam jenaka

Budi bahasanya tidak terkira

Kurang ajarnya tetap santun

Jika menipu pun masih bersopan

Bila mengampu bijak beralas tangan.

Melayu itu berani jika bersalah

Kecut takut kerana benar

Janji simpan di perut

Selalu pecah di mulut

Biar mati adat

Jangan mati anak.

Melayu di tanah Semenanjung luas maknanya:

Jawa itu Melayu, Bugis itu Melayu

Banjar juga disebut Melayu

Minangkabau memang Melayu

Keturunan Acheh adalah Melayu

Jakun dan Sakai asli Melayu

Arab dan Pakistani, semua Melayu

Mamak dan Malbari serap ke Melayu

Malah mua’alaf bertakrif Melayu(Setelah disunat anunya itu)

Dalam sejarahnya

Melayu itu pengembara lautan

Melorongkan jalur sejarah zaman

Begitu luas daerah sempadan

Sayangnya kini segala kehilangan

Melayu itu kaya falsafahnya

Kias kata bidal pusaka

Akar budi bersulamkan daya

Gedung akal laut bicara

Malangnya Melayu itu kuat bersorak

Terlalu ghairah pesta temasya

Sedangkan kampung telah tergadai

Sawah sejalur tinggal sejengkal

Tanah sebidang mudah terjual

Meski telah memiliki telaga

Tangan masih memegang tali

Sedang orang mencapai timba

Berbuahlah pisang tiga kali

Melayu itu masih bermimpi

Walaupun sudah mengenal universiti

Masih berdagang di rumah sendiri

Berkelahi cara Melayu

Menikam dengan pantun

Menyanggah dengan senyum

Marahnya dengan diam

Merendah bukan menyembah

Meninggi bukan melonjak.

Watak Melayu menolak permusuhan

Setia dan sabar tiada sempadan

Tapi jika marah tak nampak telinga

Musuh dicari ke lubang cacing

Tak dapat tanduk telinga dijinjing

Maruah dan agama dihina jangan

Hebat amuknya tak kenal lawan

Berdamai cara Melayu indah sekali

Silaturrahim hati yang murni

Maaf diungkap senantiasa bersahut

Tangan diulur sentiasa bersambut

Luka pun tidak lagi berparut

Baiknya hati Melayu itu tak terbandingkan

Segala yang ada sanggup diberikan

Sehingga tercipta sebuah kiasan:

“Dagang lalu nasi ditanakkan

Suami pulang lapar tak makan

Kera di hutan disusu-susukan

Anak di pangkuan mati kebuluran”

Bagaimanakah Melayu abad dua puluh satu

Masihkan tunduk tersipu-sipu?

Jangan takut melanggar pantang

Jika pantang menghalang kemajuan

Jangan segan menentang larangan

Jika yakin kepada kebenaran

Jangan malu mengucapkan keyakinan

Jika percaya kepada keadilan.

Jadilah bangsa yang bijaksana

Memegang tali memegang timba

Memiliki ekonomi mencipta budaya

Menjadi tuan di negara Merdeka

(usman awang)




SUDAHKAH KITA MERDEKA?

masalah perubatan dlm bulan puasa






Soalan-soalan yg selalu di tanya pesakit kpd doktor-doktor...




1) Darah keluar dari tubuh ; samada untuk berbekam, ambil darah pesakit, menderma darah, tercedera, darah dari hidung, tangan dan lain-lain.

Hukumnya : Tidak batal puasa kerana yang membatalkan adalah yang masuk ke tubuh melalui saluran terbuka hingga ke perut dan bukannya ‘yang keluar' dari tubuh. (As-Siyam Muhdathatuhu wa hawadithuhu, Dr Muhd ‘Uqlah, hlm 215). Manakala pandangan pembatalan puasa dengan berbekam yang berdalil hadith riwayat Abu Daud dan Ibn Majah dengan sanad sohih menurut Imam An-Nawawi, ia telah di pinda (nasakh) dengan hadith dari Ibn Abbas yang menyebut Nabi SAW berbekam dalam keadaan baginda berpuasa. (Riwayat Al-Bukari, 3/43) kerana hadith dari Ibn Abbas ini berlaku tatkala Haji Wida' dan terkemudian dari hadith yang menyebut batal kerana bekam. (Tasysir al-Fiqh, Qaradawi, hlm 90). Malah ini juga padangan majority mazhab kecuali Hanbali. ( Bidayatul Mujtahid, 1/247)


2) Memasukkan sesuatu ke dalam rongga terbuka dan dikeluarkan kembali tanpa sampai ke perut dan yang seumpamanya di bahagian kepala.

Ia seperti memasukkan alat tertentu ke dalam kemaluan wanita atau dubur ketika proses perubatan yang berkaitan, demikian juga memasukkan jari ke dalam hidung, telinga, mulut dan dubur.

Hukumnya : Tidak membatalkan puasa kecuali jika alatan itu dibiar tinggal di dalam kemaluan tadi, kerana illah @ faktor penyebab batal puasa adalah masuknya sesuatu berfizikal ke perut. Terkecuali juga, wanita atau lelaki yang memasukkan jarinya ke dubur atau kemaluannya dengan tujuan nafsu, maka ia membatalkan puasa, tetapi jika tujuan istinja' atau membasuhnya maka hukum yang lebih kuat menurut para ulama adalah tidak batal. (As-Siyam, Dr Md ‘Uqlah, hlm 211). Ini juga dipersetujui oleh Syeikh Atiyyah Saqar yang mengatakan masuk sesuatu ke telinga dan hidung yang tidak sampai ke perut atau bahagian otak adalah tidak membatalkan puasa. (Min Ahsanil Kalam fil Fatawa). Tidak dinafikan terdapat fatwa yang mengatakan batal, justeru, nasihat saya adalah lebih baik menjauhinya kiranya tiada tujuan yang agak mendesak. Kerana menjauhi yang khilaf (perbezaan pendapat) itu lebih baik.


3) Pil elak haid untuk puasa penuh :

Hukumnya : Harus dengan syarat tidak membawa mudarat kepada pusingan haidnya, dan memerlukan nasihat doktor Islam yang berwibawa. Namun yang terbaik adalah tidak menyekat haid, dan tidak menganggu kitaran fitrah yang telah ditentukan oleh Allah swt. selain itu wanita sedang haid juga masih boleh melaksanakan pelbagai jenis ibadah.


4) Penyembur gas untuk pesakit lelah :

Hukumnya : Baru-baru ini pada bulan Julai 2007, Persidangan Majlis Fiqh Antarabangsa di Putrajaya ada membincangkan isu ini. Tidak dinafikan ia satu isu yang amat kerap dibincangkan oleh para ulama seantero dunia dan mereka berbeza pandangan apabila sebahagian menyatakannya batal dan sebahagian lain menolak.


Menurut kajian terperinci bantuan para doktor, mendapati gas semburan itu punyai jisim-jisim putih yang jelas kelihatan jika di sembur di atas kertas. Selain itu, hampir 90 % darinya akan terus masuk ke tekak dan melekat di esophagus dan terus ke perut. Ini bermakna ianya jisim-jisim gas itu masuk ke perut setiap kali semburan. Justeru sudah pasti ia membatalkan puasa. Demikian pandangan awal dari Majlis Fiqh Antarabangsa yang bersidang Juali 2007 baru-baru ini, tetapi kemudiannya mereka menarik balik keputusan mereka untuk dibincangkan lebih terperinci dalam persidangan akan datang.


Bagaimanapun para ulama masih perlu bergantung kepada makumat jelas dari para doktor bagi memberikan fatwa tepat kerana Syeikh At-Tantawi, Syeikh Dr Muhd ‘Uqlah, menyebut hukumnya tidak batal kerana gas itu hanya terhenti di paru-paru dan tidak masuk ke perut. Manakala, ubat lelah jenis hidu melalui hidung adalah membatalkan puasa kerana ia akan masuk ke bahagian kepala. (As-Siyam, Dr Md Uqlah, hlm 226)


Namun jelas para ulama berhati-hati dalam memberikan keputusan dalam hal ini kerana menyedari walaupun serbuk-serbuk dari inhaler tersebut boleh memasuki ruang perut, namun ia adalah satu keperluan buat pesakit athma dan tidak pula dilaksanakan secara saja-saja, bukan pula kerana nafsu lapar.


5) Suntikan ke dalam tubuh melalui tangan, kaki selain rongga terbuka yang asal:

Hukumnya : Terdapat dua jenis : samada untuk berubat atau untuk menguatkan. Jika ia digunakan untuk mengurangkan demam, bius, pain killer dan apa jua tujuan asas perubatan, ia disepakati tidak membatalkan puasa (Al-Qaradawi, hlm 100 ; ‘Uqlah , hlm 226). Demikian juga hukumnya suntikan kalsium dan sebagainya untuk kekuatan badan demi perubatan.


Berkenaan suntikan makanan, air seperti glukos dan sepertinya untuk tujuan perubatan; para ulama sekali lagi berbeza pandangan : Pandangan majoriti adalah : Tidak membatalkan puasa kerana ia tidak masuk ke dalam tubuh melalui rongga terbuka dan ia tidak mengenyangkan serta tidak bercangah dengan hikmah puasa. Ia adalah fatwa oleh Syeikh Dr Yusof Al-Qaradawi, Syeikh Md Bakhit, Syeikh Abd Rahman Taj, Syeikh Ahmad As-Syurbashi, Keputusan Lajnah Fatwa Azhar tahun 1948 (Taysir Al-Fiqh As-Siyam, hlm 100; Fatawa Syar'iyyah, hlm 268 ; Yasalunaka, 5/53 dll ).


Bagaimanapun, suntikan jenis makanan ini membatalkan puasa terutama jika dilakukan secara sengaja untuk melarikan diri dari ujian keletihan lapar dahaga puasa.

Marhaban ya Ramadhan




"Sungguh telah datang kepadamu bulan Ramdhan, bulan yg penuh keberkatan. Allah memfardukan atas kamu berpuasa. Di dalam bulan Ramdhan dibuka segala pintu syurga dan dikunci segala pintu neraka dan dibelenggu seluruh syaitan. Padanya ada suatu malam yang lebih baik dari 1000 bulan. Barang siapa tidak diberikan kepadanya kebaikan malam itu, maka sesungguhnya dia telah dijauhkan dari kebajikan." (Riwayat Ahmad)

"Apabila tiba bulan Ramadan maka dibuka pintu-pintu rahmat." (Riwayat Muslim)

“Sesiapa yang berpuasa pada bulan Ramadan kerana iman dan ikhlas mengharapkan pahala dari Allah, maka dosanya yang lalu akan diampun oleh Allah.” (Riwayat Imam al-Bukhar)

Unity..perpaduan..integrasi...









When we talk of unity, let us remember that unity does not mean uniformity.

It does not mean that we should look alike, eat alike, dress alike. It does not mean that we should not have any differences in opinions.

This is diversity, not disunity. Unity does not mean negation of diversity. Diversity is good; disunity is bad.

Diversity is a mercy; disunity is a curse. Unity can be achieved with diversity.

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “You shall not enter Paradise until you have faith, and you shall not attain faith until you love each other. Should I tell you something that if you do, you shall love each other? Spread salam among you” (Reported by Muslim).

Unity means the unity of purpose and goal.
United people are diverse people, but their purpose and goal is one and the same.
They must remain conscious of their purpose and goal, and all their efforts must be directed to that purpose.
When people of diverse backgrounds and cultures become united for one purpose, they achieve progress and success.
However, when the people of one and the same culture and race lose consciousness of their purpose, they become divided and they fail.

Our purpose as Muslims is moral and spiritual.
Our purpose is to please Allah and to work for the advancement of His religion in this world.
Our goal is to achieve ultimate success and salvation in the Hereafter.
There is no better reason to be united than this.
If we keep in our mind our purpose and goal, we can easily overcome our differences.
We would not bicker on minor issues or take petty quarrels.
We would not be jealous or hateful to each other
. We would not worry who takes the credit because our aim would be to please our Lord, not to please our ego or to promote our own interests.
We would see whether the religion of Allah is promoted or not, whether the ultimate objective would be achieved or not.
This would make us more open minded, more accommodating, more merciful and kind to each other.
Unity is not a slogan; it is a mission. Wherever we are we should try to see how we can achieve unity among ourselves. Each one of us should ask ourselves: Do I want to be united with my fellow Muslims? What am I doing to work with others to promote my purpose and achieve my goal? If I have a problem, what am I doing to solve the problem? Unity does not come down as rain from the sky. Unity is not a miracle that will happen among those who do not believe in unity. Unity will only come if we strive for it and work hard to achieve it. It is a reward of faith, sincere efforts, lot of patience, good will, tolerance, and sincere commitment to the objectives and aims. Unity requires continuous efforts.

I pushed people away while wanting to correct them



I used to exhibit a certain reactionary pattern that seemed to arise whenever I entered a Masjid or Muslim gathering. It was this pesky little habit of immediately taking in my surroundings and making a mental note of everything wrong that I could perceive. I turned from one unknowing victim to another, ticking off all of the Islamic violations they were committing according to my personal pedestal of judgment.

“She is not wearing Hijab, tsk! tsk!”

“He is laughing with that woman who is most certainly not his wife or family member, shame!”

“How can she possibly show up here with her clothing so tight?! Scandalous!”

“Does his mom see how he is behaving…where is the Islamic upbringing? That’s what happens when you send your kid to public school!”

And the list went on and on.

Upon acknowledging the “sin” of others, I would begin to plan how I would correct them.

Then one day after becoming aware of the habit, I began to ask myself, “Why am I always looking for the wrong in others?” Why did my natural inclination drift towards seeing the proverbial half-filled glass, looking for the “Haraam” in everything around me? What purpose did this mental activity serve?

As I tried to understand my motives, I began my descent through several layers of mental awareness. First, I excused myself by claiming I merely wanted to enjoin the good and forbid the evil. Well, the argument went, I had to first recognize the evil in order to correct it, right? So I sat smugly, glowing in my newfound moral elitism. Then why did I feel so guilty and ugly?

I probed deeper, asking again, why? I came up with the wonderful excuse that I must merely hate what Allah hates. I would witness other’s “IstaghfirAllah” actions, causing my blood to boil, until I felt the impulse to walk over and let the perpetrator have a piece of my mind. So why did I stop myself from attacking?

My self-awareness plunged deeper. I began to think of my own reaction when I had been attacked by self-righteous “enjoiners” of the good. At first I would become embarrassed and question the fallacy of my actions. Then I would realize that the method in which I was advised angered me and made me want to strike back. Finally I would conclude that it really had nothing to do with me and more to do with the ego and insecurity of the attacker.

So was I guilty of the same thing? I tended to think of myself as self-confident and secure, yet some recent experiences had shown me otherwise. I had attended an Islamic class in which the instructor kept asking the class questions. Each time I would answer out loud, sure of my knowledge. And almost every time I was wrong. It infuriated and embarrassed me. I was overtaken by a strong desire to prove my correctness.

From this and other experiences, I realized that my desire to put others down in order to lift myself up seemed just as strong as with those who enjoyed striking me down.

After accepting my flaws and subverting my ego, I began to derive a formula for changing my inner thinking.

I knew that I loved my brothers and sisters in Islam and truly wanted the best for all of them. I also realized from my own experiences of being corrected in a harsh, public, condescending way that this manner of “advising” is rarely accepted and pushes the person into another spiral of sin (backbiting against the attacker, mental lists of all of the sins of the attacker, and possibly a verbal backlash).

I had to determine how to change my thinking and natural response system to see the good and positive in my fellow Muslims, rather than immediately seeing their shortcomings. I wanted to force myself to look inward rather than outward for flaws and weaknesses. I also needed to find ways to be motivational, affecting positive change in the community, rather than coming off as ill-mannered, degrading, or unapproachable.

So I committed myself to practicing the following steps each time the habit began to boil up from deep inside:



1. Say something nice

I would force myself to walk over to the unknowing target and immediately praise them for something good I found in them. This challenged me to see the positives in each person and vocalize them. It also increased the love between us.



2. Walk in their shoes

I would recall the past times in my life, prior to committing myself to the study and application of Islam, when I was in that person’s shoes: following a culture-based Islam that I inherited from my parents rather than from the authentic sources. I remembered the split personality I had growing up: acting one way with the Muslims and another with my friends. I would realize that just as my Islamic knowledge is limited, so is theirs, and that many people follow their best understanding without purposely doing the wrong.

I also recalled the many times I sought to correct someone only to find out I was the one with incorrect knowledge. This led to a true sense of humility, and I would thank Allah for opening my eyes to the truth and giving me even a small taste of the sweetness of Iman. Then I would make Du’a for the person.



3. Remember what works for me

I would remind myself that it was the people in my life who practiced Islam in a consistent, welcoming, non-judgmental way that opened the door for me to ask questions, accept the answers, and evoke change in my life. This challenged me to be patient and further work on myself in an effort to be that example for others.

The key to truly changing my thinking was when I finally understood that the point of correcting others was supposed to be to help them change to the good. When this was done in an unsolicited way by someone who had not taken the time to get to know the persons or their particular circumstances and to gain their trust and respect, it usually did the opposite. It upset the person and made them think ill of me and all others who they began to consider “extreme”. They assumed I was constantly judging them and mentally criticizing everything they did. They avoided my company, and their heart closed to anything positive I did or said. Rather than enjoin them to the good, I had turned them totally away.

Although I still have my “negative” days, I have committed to trying to hold my tongue from giving unwanted advice. Instead, I am deliberate in creating an environment where people ask and push to be corrected. I realize that this is exactly how I best improve; by asking those more knowledgeable than me who never make me feel inferior for asking, and do not have expectations of me after they reply to my inquiries.

The reactions from those around me prove that when I show, through beautiful manners and actions, that Allah’s Way is the way that leads to inner and outer peace, I no longer have to shove people, kicking and screaming, to that Way. Instead, they flock to it.

Belajar mendengar...

Learn to listen, just as you learn to speak









IF a person starts telling you, whether in private or public, something that you already knew very well, pretend as if you do not know it. Do not rush to reveal your knowledge or to interfere with the speech. Instead, show your attention and concentration.



Imam Ata Bin Abi Rabah said: “A young man would tell me something that I may have heard before he was born. Nevertheless, I would listen to him as if I had never heard it before.”



Ata was a Tabi’ee, i.e. the one belonging to the generation coming after the Companions.



Khalid Bin Safwan Al-Tamimi, who frequented the courts of two Caliphs, Umar Bin Abdul Aziz and Hisham Bin Abdul Malik, said: “If a person tells you something you have heard before, or news that you already learned, do not interrupt him to exhibit your knowledge to those present. This is being rude and ill-mannered.”



Ibrahim Bin Al-Junaid said: “A wise man said to his son: ‘Learn the art of listening as you learn the art of speaking.’”



Listening well means maintaining eye contact, allowing the speaker to finish the speech, and restraining your urge to interrupt his speech. Al-Hafiz Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi said in a poem: “Never interrupt a talk; though you know it inside out.”

to think about...


To Think About!

* We walk around looking at our phone, waiting for that text message or phone call. Yet we never look at the Quran for many days or even months.
* We love to talk about anything let it be even the weather but when one person says, Allah said or his ,Messenger (SAW) said, we try to quickly change the subject.
* We see on TV, the internet and around us people dying but yet we imagine we are going to live forever.
* We plan and plan but none of our plans include seeking Jannah.
* We run around all day doing favors for our friends and our loved ones but we barely ever do anything to please the lord of the worlds.

So we have to ask ourselves this:

* What do we really value?
* Do you value this short cheap world?
* Do you value the new phone you have?

When was the last time we sat by ourselves and cried thinking about our ending?

How many times did we ever imagine the Day of Judgment and our fate?

Allah shows us how serious it is.

Allah describes the discourse between Himself and the reckless and negligent on the Day of Judgment:

قَـٰلَ كَمۡ لَبِثۡتُمۡ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ عَدَدَ سِنِينَ (١١٢) قَالُواْ لَبِثۡنَا يَوۡمًا أَوۡ بَعۡضَ يَوۡمٍ۬ فَسۡـَٔلِ ٱلۡعَآدِّينَ (١١٣) قَـٰلَ إِن لَّبِثۡتُمۡ إِلَّا قَلِيلاً۬‌ۖ لَّوۡ أَنَّكُمۡ كُنتُمۡ تَعۡلَمُونَ (١١٤) أَفَحَسِبۡتُمۡ أَنَّمَا خَلَقۡنَـٰكُمۡ عَبَثً۬ا وَأَنَّكُمۡ إِلَيۡنَا لَا تُرۡجَعُونَ (١١٥) فَتَعَـٰلَى ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡمَلِكُ ٱلۡحَقُّ‌ۖ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ رَبُّ ٱلۡعَرۡشِ ٱلۡڪَرِيمِ (١١٦)

“He (Allâh) will say: “What number of years did you stay on earth?” They will say: “We stayed a day or part of a day. Ask of those who keep account.” He (Allâh) will say: “You stayed not but a little, if you had only known!” “Did you think that We had created you in play (without any purpose), and that you would not be brought back to Us?” So Exalted is Allâh, the True King, Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Lord of the Supreme Throne!” (Surah Mu’minoon 23:112-116).

So next time when we are about to about to waste our time… we should think about death… Think about what we want do when our soul is departing from our body…. For I promise you if you live like your dying soon you shall have a more promised life here and hereafter.

her way..or..no way

Recieved this write up from my friend Bronk...interesting..





This is quite interesting. ....
(To women) Please take time to ponder.....
(To men) Just enjoy the story.......

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom..
The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.

The question was: What do women really want?

Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man. And to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer. But the price would be high as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but first he would have to agree to her price.

The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table, and Arthur's closest friend! Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc.

He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden.

But Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life. And the reservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered.

Arthur's question thus: 'What a woman really wants?'
She said, 'A woman wants to be in charge of her own life.'

Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth, and that Arthur's life would be spared. And so it was. The neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.

The honeymoon hour approached and, Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen was sitting by the bed.

The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth become her horrible and deformed self only half the time, and be the beautiful maiden the other half.

'Which would you prefer?' She asked him. 'Beautiful during the day .... or at night?'
Lancelot pondered the predicament.
During the day he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends,
but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch!
Or,
Would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day?
But by night a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous moments with?

(If you are a man reading this...) What would YOUR choice be?
(If you are a woman reading this...) What would YOUR MAN'S choice be?
And Lancelot's choice is given below...
BUT... please make YOUR choice first before you scroll down below... OKAY?

Knowing the answer the witch gave to Arthur for his question,
Sir Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.
Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time..
Because, he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.
Now... what is the moral to this story?

.
.
.
.
.

The moral is...
1) There is 'witch' in every woman, no matter how beautiful she is !
2) If you don't let a woman have her own way, things are going to get ugly !

So, be careful how you treat a woman and always remember:
IT IS EITHER ' HER WAY ' OR IT IS ' NO WAY ' !!

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “If somebody reproaches you and makes you feel ashamed of any of your defects, do not make him feel ashamed of any of his defects.” [Abu Daud]



Usually, when somebody points out one of our shortcomings, we immediately become defensive and start finding faults with them. But the advice of our beloved Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), is that we should listen quietly and evaluate what we are being told. If there is something we can improve about ourselves, it is only to our own ... See Moreadvantage to do so. If the criticism is unjustified, then we are rewarded for our patience and good behaviour in not retaliating. The angels will take care of defending our honour. Starting a counter attack opens the door for Shaytaan to come in and take over.

Once Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (radi Allahu anhu) was sitting with the Prophet (sal allahu alaihi wa sallam) when a man came and started to abuse Hazrat Abu Bakr. Hazrat Abu Bakr remained silent. Finally, he started to speak in his defence. At this point the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) got up and left. Hazrat Abu Bakr immediately went after him and inquired if he had done something wrong. Rasul Allah replied that as long as he had been silent, angels had been speaking on his behalf, but when he started to respond, the devil came and sat down next to him. As the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) could not remain seated where the devil was sitting, he left.

Its ok not to be alright




You can never tell what people are thinking and feeling unless they tell you, and usually they lie.

You ask them, ‘whats wrong?’ and they say ‘nothing’.
You accept this because it’s easier than digging for the truth.

People smile when they want to cry, they laugh when they want to scream and shout.

They pretend like nothing is wrong because they don’t want to face the truth.

Things aren’t always rainbows and butterflies, sometimes you gotta scream and cry your anger and sadness to the world, because you can only hold it in for so long before something in you snaps.

So when you want to cry, cry. When you want to scream, scream.
Don’t hide behind fake smiles, it’s okay to not be alright.

looking for mistakes....mencari keaiban orang..





Artikel oleh Sheikh Salman utk kita kongsi bersama.....


Looking for Mistakes
|Sheikh Salman al-Oadah|


When it becomes a person’s habit to look for the mistakes of others, he becomes sensitized to them and attracts them to himself like a magnet. This is a tendency found in the school environment, even in kindergarten, and in society as a whole. It stems from an error in aim and intent and a tendency for a person to think he has the right to declare what is correct and what is mistaken and then go overboard in observing and keeping tabs on others, waiting to pounce on any error. This tendency in a person is often compounded by a false perception of the inherent rightness of what he is doing.

Overlooking people’s mistakes is not a sign of stupidity or simple-mindedness. Nor does it mean a tacit approval of their mistakes. Someone who concurs with the mistakes of others is no more a person of discernment than one who actively seeks out their mistakes. A person of discretion is one who knows when to correct and when to overlook.

Striking the proper balance between overlooking mistakes and pointing them out is needed in all interpersonal dealings, even between a husband and wife. In the hadîth, we find a woman describing her husband as follows: “When he enters the home, he is a lynx, but when he departs from the home, he is a lion. He never asks what has taken place.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim]

Ibn Hajar discusses the meaning of this statement, saying: “It can imply praise in that he is very generous, easy to overlook things that are bad. He does not miss what is spent of his money. When he brings something for the home, he does not enquire about it later on. He does not pay attention to the shortcomings he sees in the home. He is tolerant and overlooks things.” [Fath al-Bârî]

Often, people get carried away by their emotions, which dictate to them their words and actions, especially when it comes to matters of faith. Even then, people do not like to be slighted or taken lightly.

When Ibn `Abbâs deemed permissible the exchange of a gold coin for two gold coins, Abû Asyad al-Sâ`idî spoke to him very harshly about it. Ibn `Abbâs then said: “I would never have thought that anyone who knew of my close relationship to Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) would say something like that to me.”

No one, except for those spared by Allah’s grace, is safe from having his judgments of others clouded by personal desires.

Sheikh `Abd al-Rahmân al-Mu`allimî mentions a personal experience of his in his book al-Tankîl (2/212):
The problem of personal desires is generally too vast to comprehend. I have tested myself. Perhaps I might look into an issue claiming that I am free from the influence of vain desires and when a thought comes to me that I am pleased with, I resolve upon it and assert it. Then when another thought comes that puts the first thought in question, I become irritated with that unsettling thought and I come in conflict with myself trying to force an answer to counter it and then ignore any counterarguments.

This conduct on my part was merely because I had became biased towards regarding the first thought that pleased me as being correct. This happened in spite of the fact that nobody else besides me knew about my conclusions on that particular matter. How much more trying would the matter have been for me had I already announced my opinions publicly and then came across that which cast doubt upon my opinions? Worse still, what if I did not come upon the objections myself, but someone else came with them opposing my views?
This shows how subjective our thinking really is. Egoism is a natural human tendency.

Someone might have good intentions and motives behind his hunting for mistakes in others. It may have started as genuine concern and from a real sense that there is a need for goings-on to be supervised. However, this so often gives rise to a sense of authority superiority and superiority over others.

There is a curious story of a person who always used to recite Surâh al-Qâri`ah whenever he led his colleagues in prayer. They would tell each other that he did so because he had scarcely memorized any other chapter of the Qur’ân. One day, he chanced upon his colleagues entering al-Haram and said to them: “Perhaps the imam will recite that chapter and make a mistake, so I can correct him.”

When we convince ourselves that someone else is in error, either in his beliefs or his approach, or his ideologies, then we go on to verify whether this is the case, we often feel happy when our belief about him is confirmed. This is wrong. We should feel sad to find that he is really in error.

When Dâwûd al-Zâhirî was debating with someone, the other person countered with: “If you say such-and-such, then you have fallen into unbelief, and may Allah be praised!”

Dâwûd al-Zahirî exclaimed: “There is no might or power except with Allah! How can you find joy in the unbelief of your Muslim brother?!”

The Prophet (peace be upon him) describes the state of a person who seeks out the mistakes of others while forgetting his own, though they may be far worse, by saying: “One of you sees the piece of sand in his brother’s eye and forgets about the stick of wood in his own eye.” [Sahîh Ibn Hibbân – and uthenticated by al-Albânî]

When we attempt to weigh another person’s good and bad traits in the balance, we have a tendency to weigh down one side of the balance with our little finger so as to tip the scales in favor of our already biased opinion of that person.

Long ago, that wisest of jurists, al-Shâfi`î, said: “I never debated with anyone without hoping that Allah would make the truth manifest on his tongue.”

During the time that `Uthmân was Caliph, someone came to him and said: “People have assembled to engage in recreation, carousing, and licentiousness.”

He went to deal with the situation and found that they had already disbanded, so he praised Allah and freed a slave.

We should try to seethe good side of those who are in error, especially when we have an occasion warrants mentioning something about that person. The Prophet (peace be upon him) praised the King of Abyssinia, who was a non-Muslim at that time, by describing him a king in whose realm nobody is oppressed. He said this on the occasion of sending some of his Companions to immigrate to Abyssinia.

A woman who was engaging in Islamic work in one of the Muslim countries once say a woman wearing a proper headscarf and smoking a cigarette. She exclaimed: “Glory be to Allah! A covered woman smoking!”

Might she have rather said: “By Allah’s grace, in spite of the fact that she smokes, she observes proper Islamic dress.”

It is true that a person who has some visible signs of righteousness about him is still liable to be taken to task for his shortcomings like anyone else, if not more so. Nevertheless, we need to train ourselves to be balanced when weighing the merits and demerits of others, lest we give false measure.

Does this mean that we have to swallow everyone else’s mistakes and keep quiet? Not at all. We are supposed to correct mistakes. However, going to overboard in correcting others is itself a mistake that needs to be corrected.

The prophet (peace be upon him) said: “The believer is a mirror of his brother.” [Sunan al-Tirmidhî and Sunan Abî Dâwûd – and authenticated by al-Albânî]

The mirror is a very eloquent and expressive metaphor here. When you look in the mirror, you see yourself as you really are with no alterations. Likewise, a Muslim sees in his fellow Muslim a good face that is enlightened by the truth just as he sees his negative qualities and deficiencies. This is not how some people have misunderstood the hadîth, thinking that it means we should go around exposing the mistakes and shortcomings of those we meet.

Tak ada Gading yang tak Retak....

Tak Ada Gading yang Tak Retak

Penulis: Ummu Sa’id
Muroja’ah: Ustadz Abu Mushlih Ari Wahyudi

Setiap kita mempunyai kesalahan dan kekurangan. Manusia tidak bisa lari dengan menutup diri terhadap kekurangannya. Yang harus dilakukan adalah introspeksi dan menghisab diri sendiri untuk sebuah perbaikan.

Umar bin Khaththab rahdiyallahu ‘anhu pernah berpesan, “Hisablah dirimu sebelum diri kamu sendiri dihisab, dan timbanglah amal perbuatanmu sebelum perbuatanmu ditimbang.”

Berikut ini beberapa hal yang dapat membantu seseorang untuk introspeksi diri dan memperbaiki berbagai kekurangannya:

* Mengakui kekurangan dirinya. Ibnu Hazm berkata, “Seandainya orang yang kurang itu mengetahui kekurangan dirinya, niscaya ia menjadi sempurna.” Beliau melanjutkan, “Manusia itu tidak luput dari kekurangan, dan orang yang berbahagia adalah orang yang sedikit aibnya.” (Al Akhlaq wa As Siyar)



* Menyadari kekurangan yang ada pada dirinya sebagai kekurangan. Ada beberapa orang yang mengetahui suatu kekurangan ada pada dirinya tapi dia tidak menganggap hal itu sebagai sebuah kekurangan. Pengetahuan terhadap kekurangan dirinya nyaris tidak mendatangkan manfaat apa-apa untuk perbaikan. Hal ini bisa disebabkan karena dia memandang dirinya dengan kacamata dirinya sendiri dan tidak memperhatikan kacamata orang lain dalam menilai dirinya. Disinilah perlunya kita membuka diri sendiri terhadap pandangan dan penilaian dari orang lain, terutama orang yang alim.



* Kita harus mengetahui dan mencari kekurangan diri kita. Sebab mengetahui penyakit itu dapat menolong seseorang untuk menentukan obatnya. Ibnu Al Muqaffa’ mengatakan, “Salah satu aib manusia terbesar ialah ia tidak mengetahui kekurangan dirinya. Karena orang yang tidak mengetahui aib dirinya, maka ia pun tidak mengetahui kebaikan orang selainnya. Barangsiapa yang tidak mengetahui aib dirinya dan kebaikan orang lain, maka ia tidak bisa menghilangkan aib yang dia sendiri tidak mengetahuinya dan tidak akan mendapatkan kebaikan-kebaikan orang lain yang tidak pernah ia lihat selamanya.” (Al Adab Ash Shaghir wa Al Adab Al Kabir). Mahmud Al Waraq mengatakan “Manusia yang paling sempurna ialah yang paling tahu kekurangan dirinya dan yang paling dapat mengalahkan syahwat dan keinginannya” (Aqwal Ma’tsurah wa Kalimat Jamilah, Dr Muhammad Ash Shabbagh)




* Tidak memandang orang lain dengan pandangan yang remeh sehingga dia bisa melihat kebaikan yang ada pada orang lain dan mendapat manfaat darinya.



* Tidak memandang diri sendiri dengan penuh kekaguman dan merasa dirinya yang paling baik. Rasa ujub ini seringkali disisipkan iblis ke dalam hati kita tanpa kita sadari sehingga akhirnya kita larut dan terbawa. Selain merupakan dosa, rasa ujub menghalangi seseorang untuk mencari kekurangan yang ada pada dirinya sendiri sehingga dia terhalang dari perbaikan dan terus berkubang pada kekurangan. Ibnu Hazm mengatakan, “Ketahuilah dengan penuh keyakinan bahwa manusia itu tidak bisa luput dari kekurangan, kecuali para nabi. Barangsiapa yang tidak mengetahui berbagai kekurangan dirinya, maka ia akan menjadi orang yang hina, lemah akal, dan sedikit pemahamannya, yang mana ia merasa bukan sebagai orang yang hina dan tidak merasa bahwa tempat berpijaknya adalah kehinaan. Karena itu, ia tidak sudi mencari kekurangan dirinya dan tidak sudi menyibukkan diri dengan hal itu bahkan dia merasa kagum dengan dirinya sendiri dan sibuk dengan aib orang lain yang tidak membahayakan dirinya baik di dunia maupun di akhirat.” (Al Akhlaq wa As Siyar)



* Senantiasa berusaha menghilangkan kekurangan-kekurang an itu. Tidak cukup sekedar mengetahui kekurangan-kekurang an diri, tetapi harus pula berusaha menghilangkannya. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala berfirman (yang artinya),” Beruntunglah orang yang membersihkan diri.” (Qs. Al A’la: 14). “

Sungguh beruntung orang yang membersihkan dirinya.” (Qs. Asy Syams:9).

Ibnu Hazm berkata, “Orang yang berakal adalah orang yang dapat menentukan aib dirinya, lalu mengalahkannya dan berusaha menundukkannya. Sedangkan orang yang dungu adalah orang yang tidak mengetahui aib dirinya, baik karena kurang pengetahuan dan akalnya serta lemah pikirannya maupun karena ia menilai bahwa aibnya tersebut adalah perangainya. Dan ini adalah aib terbesar di muka bumi ini.” (Al Akhlaq wa As Siyar)
* Berjanji kepada diri sendiri untuk menjadi baik terhadap dirinnya. Ibnu Muqaffa’ mengatakan, “Hendaklah kamu berjanji terhadap dirimu sendiri untuk menjadi baik, sehingga dengan hal itu ia akan menjadi ahli kebajikan. Sebab jika anda melakukan demikian, maka kebajikan akan datang mencarimu sebagaimana air mengalir mencari tempat yang curam.” (Al Adab Ash Shaghir wa Al Adab Al Kabir). Ibnu Hazm berkata, “Mengabaikan sesaat dapat merusak setahun” (Al Akhlaq wa As Siyar).



* Kita tidak boleh menjadikan keburukan kemarin sebagai pembenaran untuk mengerjakan keburukan hari ini dan tidak pula menjadikan keburukan seseorang sebagai pembenaran untuk kita berbuat keburukan. Ibnu Hazm mengatakan, “Saya tidak melihat iblis lebih bodoh, lebih buruk dan lebih dungu daripada dua kalimat yang dilontarkan oleh propagandisnya: Pertama, alasan orang yang berbuat keburukan bahwa si fulan juga telah mengerjakan keburukan itu sebelumnya; kedua, seseorang menganggap remeh keburukannya hari ini karena ia telah berbuat keburukan itu kemarin, atau ia melakukan keburukan dalam suatu hal karena ia telah berbuat keburukan dalam hal lainnya. Akhirnya kedua kalimat tersebut menjadi alasan yang memudahkan untuk berbuat keburukan dan mengkategorikan keburukan tersebut dalam batas yang diakui, dianggap baik, dan tidak diingkari.” (Al Akhlaq wa As Siyar)



* Menelaah sesuatu yang bermanfaat yang dapat membantu perbaikan diri terutama ilmu syar’i. Dengan ilmu syar’ilah seseorang dapat mengetahui mana yang baik dan mana yang buruk. Dengan ilmu syar’i dia memiliki parameter yang tepat untuk menimbang segala sesuatu. Ini adalah poin yang sangat penting.
